Set I: Pygmy Twylyte > Helicopters(end), Vassillios > Jigsaw Earth(mid) > Haleakala Crater, Helicopters(beg) > Jigsaw Earth(end) Set II: Triumph > I-Man, Reactor(>4/12) > Camera B Encore: Story of the World, Crystal Ball, I Remember When
The sound quality is very good and the playing is top notch throughout.
Pygmy > Helix is a great way to begin a show, and the jam out of Pygmy is awesome with a few different themes. This jam is phenomenal.
Vassillios > Jigsaw (mid) > Haleakala is a decent segment. The jam out of Vassillios starts out with a start/stop jam, and turns into a joyous celebration by the time it's getting near Jigsaw. The improv here isn't quite long enough for my tastes, but it's not a bad jam. The way they get from Jigsaw to Haleakala is very pretty psychedelic music, even if it's only for a minute or two. Haleakala is a song that I personally always love to hear.
Helix > Jigsaw (end) is another decent segment. The Helix jam starts with the same chord progression they usually did around this era, but once they break free from that, there's some pretty interesting chilled out jamming going on. It's very laid back, sort of textural stuff, and you don't get to hear the Biscuits get into that very often.
Triumph > I-Man is flat out awesome. The jam out Triumph and into I-Man is fantastic. Magner is doing some very cool stuff at parts in this jam, and at times this jam is downright terrifying. Very psychedelic music here. I-Man has multiple themed jams, each of which has a different feel to it, and all are on point.
Reactor > Camera B is actually pretty boring, but by this point I didn't really care. The rest of the show was so on point throughout that there was no way one small segment like this could have ruined things.
Story! After the night before had a five minute standalone Resurrection for the encore, this nearly 20 minute long Story is a welcome sight, and they play it really well, including a very fun (albeit straightforward) jam.
IRW is a standalone, and there's nothing worth mentioning about this particular version.
The show is again, pretty average. Pygmy > Helix and Triumph are both incredible, and the rest is all solid, though not all that memorable.

This was my first Biscuits show. Was looking through the recently reviewed and found. I had listened to quite a bit of their cd's and shows online but had a difficult time following this one while there. Alot of improve and partial songs through-out the first set. I remember leaving saying what just happened, haha.
There must have been 400 people at this show, too small a venue for the band now-a-days. Now being a more experienced listener would love to travel back for this one.
